Our Story

TriStar Oilfield Services Limited was established in 1988 to provide engineering, consulting and supervisory services to the UK domestic, and the international oil and gas industry. The company operated initially from offices in the town of Dundee, Scotland, but due to the growth of the company, moved into purpose built premises in Wester Gourdie Industrial Estate in Dundee.

Following the market survey, in early 2000 and in order to expand in the middle east & Africa regions, TriStar established a regional office in Cairo, Egypt. This office was officially registered in Egypt under the name “TriStar Middle East”.

In 2012 and to meet the growing demand for training in the Gulf region, TriStar Gulf for Training Technical & Management LLC was established as a UAE based company registered in Abu Dhabi and licensed by Abu Dhabi Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ACTVET).
